Rishi Kapoor joins Parched director Leena Yadav's next film, a comedy about father-son relationship
Parched director Leena Yadav has signed on veteran actor Rishi Kapoor for her next, a comedy that revolves around a father-son relationship. Yadav has maintained that his real life son Ranbir Kapoor is a brilliant actor, she has already signed a newcomer as Rishi's reel life son for the film.
Mumbai Mirror quotes Yadav as saying, "Vivek Anchalia came up with the story idea and then Vivek, Manu Rishi Chadha and I started working on it together after I wrapped up Parched. It’s about the generation gap and how technology has changed the mode of communication. It will have several interesting characters each of whom has something to say."
Interestingly, Rishi is doing another film based on a father-son relationship but he is playing the son in that one. The 63-year old actor will play son to Amitabh Bachchan in Umesh Shukla's comedy 102 Not Out which will see the two seasoned actors reunite on the silver screen after 26 years. They last shared screen space in Rishi's uncle Shashi Kapoor's 1991 superhero film Ajooba.
Leena's film will also be a challenge for Rishi as he will play a 55 year old father, a decade younger than his real age. Recently, comedian Vir Das was roped in to play his son in the comedy Patel Ki Punjabi Shaadi that released last Friday.
